Individual & couples counselling and clinical supervision in the Redcar & Cleveland area

***I'm now offering online counselling via Zoom/Facetime for individual clients and existing couple clients.


Since qualifying as a counsellor in 1997 and having now worked with many individuals and couples, I know that lots of us have times in our lives when we struggle to find our own way through difficulties. Counselling offers time, space and confidential, non-judgemental, professional support so that you can move on with your life confidently, with more understanding of yourself and those around you.

I'm a qualified and highly experienced counsellor, couples counsellor, psychosexual therapist and clinical supervisor working with individuals and couples in Saltburn. Here are just some of the areas I can help with: relationship difficulties, self esteem (and working with that inner critical voice that many of us are familiar with), bereavement and loss, anxiety, depression, stress, divorce and separation.


I provide a safe, calm space where you can talk about what's going on for you, identify what you want to change and how you can achieve that. Counselling can help whether you're simply tired of feeling unhappy and stuck and are ready to move forward, if you're struggling to come to terms with a major change in your life, through bereavement, separation, illness or retirement or if you and your partner are trapped in a repeating cycle of blaming each other and would like to reconnect in a healthier, happier way.

I can offer you the time to find what needs to change in your life and together we can work on bringing about those changes.

Relationship Counselling

It can be daunting for a couple to consider coming along to talk about their difficulties with a counsellor so it's vital to know that you and your partner are in safe, professional, experienced hands so that you can concentrate on working through your problem. Relationship counselling offers you the chance to move beyond arguments and stuckness, to improve your understanding of your partner, yourself and the difficulties you're experiencing. With this new understanding, solutions become clear and achievable. As a Relate-trained relationship counsellor (qualifying in 1997), I've worked successfully with many couples over the years and helped them with problems arising from bereavement, affairs, communication issues, to sexual difficulties and long-term illness.

Taking the next step

If you're looking for couples counselling in the Redcar or Middlesbrough area or individual counselling for yourself, it's important (and can be tricky) to find a counsellor you trust who 'gets' you and your problem. Our first meeting is an assessment session where we can discuss what brings you to counselling and how I can help. For more info on the initial assessment, please have a look here.

To arrange an initial session or have a chat about the counselling you are looking for, please call me on 07462 870184 and leave a message. I'll be sure to get back to you promptly. Or you might prefer to send me an email message by clicking here.
